    Personally I agree. Gsp would batter him just like he'll beat the better wrestler in Hendricks. Due to riddum.

    Dana White says they are not interested.

    We'll see how long this stance lasts......

    I think this is a terrible move by Bellator personally.

    Yes I accept its an industry & now its all about getting people interested in their product. But to release an undefeated champion just because the company find him boring is not a good sign for the future of MMA.

    Exactly since. Since Bellator released him, that puts the ball in the UFC's court. They don't have to match anything now, so they can dictate things a lot more. Bad for Askren.

    This situation has shown just how little a lot of MMA fans think of him and his style too. He's obviously a very talented guy, but most people just don't care for him. That doesn't give him much of a bargaining tool.

    WSOF have offered him a contract...

    Askren vs Palhares could be a good fight which I'd actually expect Palhares to win... Winner fights for the title vs winner of Fitch/Carl.
